J Salon / It seems as if nearly everyone buys his or her Christmas presents at the mall. This year, break away from the herd and visit the Kakaako area for an abundance of small businesses with big-time quality. Here are some great gift ideas you must check out. These gifts are so special, you’re going to want to keep them for yourself. (Except the dog food.)

Whip Your Hair Back and Forth

An ugly haircut is most devastating, so save a loved one the trauma with a gift card to Honolulu’s exclusive J Salon. Rated in Elle‘s top 100 salons, famed stylist Joe Randazzo and his staff will make sure you look like a rock star. The prices increase according to the hairdresser’s level of experience: Haircuts range from $100 (with Randazzo himself) to as low as $45. All cuts always include consultation, shampoo, a pampering scalp massage and a finishing blow dry. Aside from haircuts, J Salon also offers hair styling, color treatments, hair extensions, hair re-texturizing and brow waxing.

Price: What you put on the card is up to you.
